Arsene Wenger has criticised Jack Wilshere in his pre-West Brom press conference after a photograph circulated yesterday which shows the Arsenal midfielder honking on a ciggie outside a London club in the wee small hours of Thursday morning.

When asked about the photo and the ramifications thereof, Wenger replied: “Well, I disagree completely with that behaviour. The fact that you can damage your health at home, nobody sees it. You damage your reputation as an example as well.

Asked if he would be reprimanding Wilshere over the incident, Wenger added: “I will leave that between him and me.”

Well, if it’s any consolation Arsene, we all know Mesut Ozil likes the odd crafty fag-on-a-yacht and it hasn’t done him any harm – except, y’know, corrode his already asthmatic lungs…

  1. That Terry Lewis says:

    Not that I’m gunna claim being a health expert but isn’t smoking not that terrible when we’ve had Rooney and Berbatov been known to smoke yet be top draw players?

    My point is, smoking increases your ability to play football? /Otto

      @That Terry Lewis: Robert Prosinecki smoked like a forest fire and Des Walker was supposedly on 20-a-day for most of his career. It’s positively GOOD for you!

  3. One Man Went to Mow says:

    Vialli was made to cut back from 4 down to 2 packs a day whilst at Chelsea. Also Socrates won the world cup on a pack a day.

  4. Al says:

    It’s a known fact thatb Glenn Whelan, Paul Green, Igor Biscan, Jason Lee and Titus Bramble DON’T smoke so that proves it makes you a good footballer

  5. joe says:

    And so the Rooneyfication of young Jack commences. Pity, he looked like quite a prospect two years ago.

  6. Eggboy Harris says:

    Socrates never won a World Cup. Maradona, on the other hand, did, and he loved all kinds of blib.

  7. two words says:

    Johan Cruyff.

  8. Ryan says:

    The only thing Danny Sturridge be smoking is defenders. Am I right guys!??! whoaaaaa

  9. bestie says:

    The greatest European player of all time, Johan Cruyff, was a heavy smoker

  10. Amsterdamadrista says:

    Carlo Ancelotti (during his time as Milan coach) smoked a cig in the dug-out during a Champions League match in which AC Milan lost 0-3 at home.
    That season they won the Champions League.

    @fkgf: do you even know what the word “relevant” means you clown? He’s a manager who is also a former player…it’s not too much of a jump to assume that if he’s smoking as a manager that he also could also have smoked as a player! This is how it’s f*cking relevant. Think about this the next time you call someone an idiot for posting something you are too stupid to understand!

  12. TravisKOP says:

    Zidane used to smoke after matches
